I hate that copy of the show; check out this version - the sound isn't *quite* as good, but the difference is negligible, and the DS isn't all chopped up:

I can't blame you for switching gears and checking out some 10/12/68 - that is my GO TO show of the year. Another on my 'the greatest of all time' list. Hope you enjoyed it!

Is that one of the ones you can't get your phishy buddies into cuz of how they perceive the sound quality?

Haha, well 10/12/68 has some of the very best sound of any Grateful Dead show in any era, so if they can't warm up to this recording, then there's no hope for say, 6/14/68 or something like that. I did have it on once at a party and while I was loving it, my Deadhead buddy was the only one who said nary a peep about it!

You had 10/12 on at a party or 6/14? If 6/14, I think I can imagine the peeps you heard. More like squawks. Or shrieks. I can be sadly oblivious to bad sound if I'm by myself, but ... well, maybe you could get away with 6/14 at a really LOUD party. ("Huh? The music is ... what did you say? Too fuzzy? Too weird? Huh? Music, what music?")

So, if you put on 10/12, what peeps did the non-Deady "peeps" peep? Did they like it or want you to turn it off or ask who the music was by or what?
